Pythagorean Plato: Prelude to the Song Itself

Pythagorean Plato: Prelude to the Song Itself by Ernest G. McClain
English | Mar 1984 | ISBN: 0892540109 | 192 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

My book develops certain musical insights of Ernst Levy and Siegmund Levarie into Pythagoreanism in general and Plato in particular, and owes its existence to their encouragement and assistance over a period of many years. My further collaboration since 1974 with Antonio T. de Nicolás, reported in The Myth of Invariance, uncovered the musical-mathematical foundations of this material within the much older Hindu sacred writings and permitted Plato's story to be told with greater confidence and in fewer words than I had thought possible.

The pairing of Francis Poulenc and Reynaldo Hahn on this album may seem contrived merely because of biographical parallels between the two men, for their musical approaches and styles are quite different, if not at odds. Poulenc's neo-Classical, self-conscious parodies in the Sinfonietta and the dry, sarcastic wit of the Aubade are a world away from Hahn's pretty, even precious, Romanticism, which is unabashedly on display in La bal de Béatrice d'Este. However, the discerning listener may find in Poulenc streaks of Hahn's pensiveness and languor, which his comic antics never completely conceal; there is in Hahn a buoyant, diatonic tunefulness that is readily found in Poulenc. (Interestingly, some of Poulenc's adaptations of Renaissance music bear a remarkable similarity to Hahn's antique pastiches in this ballet.) Furthermore, their fondness for unusual chamber combinations is striking, and the transition from the Aubade to La bal de Béatrice d'Este is not at all jarring because they both share the charm and ambience of the salon orchestra.

Globalization creates what physicists and chemists call increased entropy. Skel breaks down, flows flow freely, new orders and new disorder occur. It brings challenges and enrichments. This has always been the classical music where musicians have crossed borders for centuries to find income and good living conditions. What kind of enrichment this year causes in our domestic little spirit dam can be studied by looking at the Danish chamber ensembles, which together with our energetic organ orchestras ensure that at least live classical music is played throughout Denmark. From Armenia via Germany, Pianist Marianna Shirinyan came to Denmark 15 years ago and got a job in the Esbjerg Ensemble.

This album contains the two most greatly significant solo piano sonatas of the mid-nineteenth century, coincidentally composed at the same time by two of the greatest composers of the era who, in aesthetic development and individual character, could hardly have been more different from one another, although their mutual respect is one of the least appreciated aspects of their later relationship.

Frédéric Dard, le romancier français le plus lu de la seconde moitié du XXe siècle, demeure un créateur mal connu de ses contemporains. La faute en incombe sans nul doute à San-Antonio, son double littéraire au succès phénoménal. …

Mitten im vermeintlichen Sommerloch veröffentlicht da eine Band ihr neues Album, der man den Spaß am Musikmachen durchweg anhört: Leon Francis Farrow aus Berlin. Ganz bewusst lehnt es sich an Vorbilder aus den 60ern an – was „King Future“ allerdings von anderen Bands der Retro-Welle absetzt, ist, dass es sich nicht hinter der selbstverständlich schon im Titel mitschwingenden Ironie versteckt, sondern ganz offen Verletzlichkeit und Unsicherheit zugibt. Eine Rezension.
